Red Velvet Cookie Dough Bars Recipe


For the Red Velvet Cookie Dough
  1. Using a stand mixer (or a hand mixer + large bowl), add butter and brown sugar. Beat on low until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Keeping speed on low, mix in vanilla extract.
  3. Gradually add sweetened condensed milk and flour to bowl, alternating between the two.
  4. Once mixture is combined, add red food coloring until desired color is reached. I used 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of this Red Velvet Bakery Emulsion.
  5. Prepare a 8x8 baking dish by spraying the sides with cooking spray and lining with parchment paper. Keep the ends of the parchment paper long so you'll be able to easily lift the bars out of the pan when finished.
  6. Pour cookie dough mixture into the prepared pan, using a spatula to pat and spread evenly into the corners.
  7. Cover and refrigerate (or freeze) cookie dough until firm. If using a refrigerator, chill for at least four hours. If freezing, let set for at least two hours.

For the Chocolate Topping
  1. Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for one minute, then stir. Microwave for another 15 seconds, then test chips. If about half have begun to melt, continue stirring the chocolate until all the chips have melted and chocolate is smooth. If needed, microwave another 15 seconds to melt the last few chips.
  2. Let chocolate cool for 5 minutes, then pour over chilled cookie dough. Spread evenly with a spatula and return to the refrigerator (or freezer) until topping has solidified.

Putting it All Together
  1. Using handles on parchment, remove the cookie dough from the pan, then discard parchment paper.
  2. Cut cookie dough into desired size, usually somewhere between 8 and 16 bars. Tip: saw through the chocolate layer, then press down to cut through the cookie dough.
  3. Keep bars refrigerated (or frozen) until ready to eat.
